Stampbord Project

Lovely post from Katy Leitch 

Stampbord Notebook

I love making notebooks, especially as little gifts! I found the ATC Stampbord was just the perfect size to create an embellishment for the front of an A7 size notebook.
1 Sponge the ATC-sized Stampbord with Pure Colour Chemistry inks in Citrus Lime, Peter’s Pear and Bottled Sunshine.
2 Spray the Circle Grid Background stamp with a light mist of water and press into the inks to create the pattern you see in the background. Allow to dry.
3 Stamp the image from Texture Squares along the bottom edge with a Meadow Greens Triple Colour Chemistry inkpad. Ink up only part of the stamp and stamp with it in your hand rather than on a block to create a less solid image.
4 Stamp the lines from Daisies and Rainbows onto the Stampbord in black. Turn the stamp upside down and stamp again over the top of the first stamping, to add more circle details. Doodle a border with black pen.
5 Colour a piece of card with Colour Chemistry Acrylic Ink in Diva. Stamp lightly over the top with the roses image from Texture Squares. Hand-draw some hearts onto the card and cut out. Add the hearts to the top of the stems and add a sticker quote.
6 Stamp the Circle Grid onto a black notebook with white pigment ink and glue the ATC to the front.

Citrus Lime and Bottled Sunshine. 
NB Lynnda has this stamp on offer this week #treattime
